Principles of Bioengineering

Bioengineering is an interdisciplinary field and its definition varies according to the emphasis of the group. In this module, bioengineering is taken to be the application of the fundamental concepts and methods of physical science and engineering to biological and medical sciences. The goal is to teach students how to apply fundamental engineering principles to solve challenging problems in biology and medicine and to develop new medical devices. This module assumes that students have basic training in mathematics, biology, physics and chemistry. The module will be based on four main introductory modules: a) Biomaterials, b) Biomechanics, c) Biofluid and d) Medical Imaging.
